How it works

TerraCycle Zero Waste Boxes allow you to recycle almost every type of waste. Simply follow the steps below to recycle your waste with us and make a positive impact on our planet. 

What happens to your recyclables?

The collected waste will be shredded and separated. The plastic (such as the cigarette filters) will undergo pelletization and extrusion to be molded into various recycled plastic products. The paper will be recycled and the tobacco and other organics will be composted.

Cigarette Waste Receptacles

You can order exclusive receptacles designed specifically for recycling cigarette waste in your community or at your business location.

Receptacles are perfect for distributing standardizing cigarette recycling in small or large-scale outdoor environments. These metal receptacles can be equipped with steel bolt bands for flexible placement at your location.

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all cigarettes (or related, acceptable products) are completely extinguished prior to shipping.
